Honoring A "Blues Brother"

September 3, 2011 Updated Sep 4, 2011 at 12:20 AM EDT

NIAGARA FALLS, NY ( WKBW ) Canadian actor, comedian, and musician Dan Aykroyd visited Niagara Falls, New York Saturday.

Mayor Paul Dyster welcomed the popular entertainer, and presented him with a key to the city.

Aykroyd was in the area for a presentation at Supermarket Liquors Saturday afternoon. He was there to promote his own brand of vodka, called "Crystal Head."

The website for Aykroyd's product describes it like this:
The Founders

Dan Aykroyd is a well-known actor, musician, entrepreneur and spiritualist; a believer in what he calls the "invisible world" where otherworldly presences are a "form of reality as valid as our normal reality."

Partner and veteran fine artist John Alexander has exhibited extensively in the United States and around the world. Together, they were avid researchers of the legend of the 13 crystal heads. And from this inspiration, an idea was born.
